New York Times Journalists to Be Released

Saif Gaddafi, the son of Muammar, tells ABC's Christiane Amanpour that the four New York Times journalists captured in Libya will be released. The journalists entered the country without visas, as is common, to cover the rebellion against Gaddafi. “They entered the country illegally and when the army, when they liberated the city of Ajdabiya from the terrorists and they found her, they arrest her because you know, foreigners in this place,” said Gaddafi. “But then they were happy because they found out she is American, not European. And thanks to that, she will be free tomorrow.” Gaddafi was seemingly referring to Lynsey Addario, a photographer, but Libyan officials confirmed that all four journalists would be released.
